Finca Mónica women’s WSET scholarship

Finca Mónica is Long Wines’ brand of Rioja, made in the Rioja Oriental, which celebrates the work of women in the world of wine.   Although there are many women who work in the process of making and selling Finca Mónica – you can read about them here – we would like there to be many more women working in Spanish wineries.   For this reason, we are sponsoring a WSET course for a woman, resident in Spain, who has been working in the world of wine for less than 10 years.

The candidates can be from any sector – winemaking, viticulture, sommeliers… the only requisite is that they must studied a wine-related subject or have worked for at least a year in the sector.

The prize is a WSET 2 course with Vintage Class based in Aranda del Duero. The winner will have a year to book their course and can take it in person in a variety of locations: Haro, La Rioja, Aranda del Duero or the Balearic Islands or online in Spanish or English.   The course will explain the WSET’s systematic tasting technique and develop the student’s knowledge of the key international grapes and wine styles.

Terms and conditions and the entry questions are available here (Spanish only).
